(December 25) A 16-year-old has died from his injuries sustained in a two-vehicle crash in Aurora on Christmas Eve.

The crash occurred about 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 24, near the intersection of East Jewell Avenue and South Abilene Street. The Aurora Police Department Traffic Unit responded, and officers learned that a Mini Cooper was traveling northbound on South Abilene Street at a high rate of speed. An Acura SUV was turning left from Jewell Avenue onto Abilene Street when the crash occurred in that intersection.

The driver of the Mini Cooper, a 16-year-old boy, was transported to the hospital where he tragically died today. An adult passenger in the Mini Cooper was also transported to the hospital with serious injuries and is expected to survive. The woman who was driving the Acura was evaluated for her injuries on scene.

The identity of the driver will be released by the Arapahoe County Coroner's Office after positive identification and notification of next of kin.

The Aurora Police Department Traffic Investigation closed the intersection for several hours so they could collect evidence, photograph the scene, and take necessary measurements. The investigation is ongoing and will determine what the speeds were prior to the crash and any other contributing factors. If you have any information about this crash and you haven’t already spoken to investigators, please contact the Aurora Police Traffic Section. Tipsters can also anonymously report any information to Metro Denver Crime Stoppers.

This is the 48th traffic related fatality of 2022.
